My CharPOP experience

  CharPOP was Calgary’s first attempt at a temporary restaurant – created at a secret location for just three days (January 15-17). CharPOP featured the amazing talents of Canadian chefs Connie DeSousa, John Jackson and Grant Van Gameren along with baker Aviv Fried. Bookings were extremely limited with two seatings nightly. Reservations were capped at a maximum request of four diners … Continue reading

Eating out way too much lately

Wow, I’ve been slacking off these past two months and not really posting a heck of a lot. I really have no excuse. We all need to eat… So here are some tasty pictures of things I’ve eaten over the past little while. But the real treat is still to come (next post, I promise). … Continue reading

JoJo’s made it downtown…start rejoicing!

Two times. That’s how many times I’ve eaten at JoJo’s last week. For those of you who don’t know, JoJo’s truck can normally be found in the Barbeques Galore parking lot in the NE quadrant of our city. It really did suck to be the rest of us….until now. After much anticipation, I found out that … Continue reading

…and Alley Burger

As luck would have it – on Tuesday I found out that Alley Burger was going to be parking their truck by my work…after work! A quick dance party in my office ensued. I was finally going to get to taste my first Alley Burger. I got there shortly after 5:00PM for a 5:45 open. I’m the 9th … Continue reading

Finally! Perogy Boyz…

One might say it’s a bad thing when you leave your tasty beverage at the bar to go get perogies. Well, dear readers…I did exactly that last week. I left my drink last Friday night to go in search of the Perogy Boyz food truck that was rumoured to be only three blocks away from my favorite watering … Continue reading

Noshing in the mountains

This past weekend, the weather was fantastic. Two glorious days were spent in Canmore and Banff for the 4th Annual Dragon Boat Festival at Lake Minnewanka. I was busy paddling (on the extremely clear but FREEZING lake)…so, there are only a handful of photos. What is there to say really? The food was great, the company was insane and all … Continue reading

On the hunt…

I can see them…across the field. Like a lioness scoping out my prey, I feel myself crouching down low, ready to pounce. Time slows down and everything becomes still. They have no idea what’s coming. Am I dreaming? Is this really happening? I pinch myself to check. Holy crap…that smarts! Yes, I’m really awake – and … Continue reading

Food Truck Mania

In the past, City Bylaws had prevented us from having full-service food trucks selling tasty treats on our streets. We only had the odd sausage / hot dog / falafel cart as our choices of street meat. With the official launch of the Calgary food truck pilot launch on August 11th, foodies (and everyone else) in town … Continue reading

Gourmet Stampede…but Christmas is starting to sneak up on us!

OMG! I’ve been so busy eating my way through the Stampede season that I JUST realized – Christmas time is 5 months from now. I need to get a move on things if I’m going to get everything done in time. I’ll post details later on…as we don’t want to spoil the surprise in case any of … Continue reading

My worst dining experience ever…and it happened at the Joyce on 4th

So normally, I’m pretty laid back when it comes to dining out. I’ve been there…I know what it’s like to be a server totally overwhelmed and in the weeds. I hardly ever rant about service because really, I know that everyone has a bad day. But yesterday, I was absolutely horrified by the lack of … Continue reading
